Bobby Cat Sunflower
If you are just learning how to play rhythm guitar DO NOT listen to this version of “China Cat Sunflower” or else you will walk to your nearest trash can and deposit your instrument into it out of exasperation. Bob absolutely annihilates it here and I mean that in the complimentary way. Jerry kind of all but disappears for a while. I don’t know if he was just giving Bob some spotlight time or if he was having issues but my word what a performance by Weir.

Just a box of rain
Note: Don't let the initial distant sound
of the Casey Jones scare you off.
VOCALS ON THIS RECORDING (mid-1st set)
SOME OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER HEARD
especially -Box, Woman Enough, Row Jimmy
If you love harmonies--this section is it.
This 'Woman Enough' is another example
of why I am all in for DJG
Second Set not nearly as good vocal wise.
The EL PASO is beautiful.
During the slow part of Black Peter
-is when NOT to have a side conversation near a taper.
(no way the Black Peter is from the Board)
Yeah, notes say it is Aud patch,,
the Big River has a little distant feel but some of the riffs feel quadraphonic.
It just blows my mind how much music this band was capable of laying down in a single night.
Really nice HCS especially for the jam
just chilling mid 2nd set
Me & MY Uncle hold it's own. Weir all over those lyrics!
Listening to Garcia sing
and Phil's bass
on He's Gone
and Donna moaning low.
"HOT AS A PISTOL
BUT C000000L inside."
From Truckin' on
Weir takes the Lead Vocals
for the rest of the evening.
I don't know where this places for the year
but I sure love their sound in 1973
(overall Sound quality varies-
Brief dropout in Truckin'
but they tear into the jam
and I am feeling it
tough show to quantify
at times deserving those '3' ratings
but WOW when dialed in. :)
STEALIN MY FREAKIN' FACE
and that mid 1st set is SOOOoooo SWEET
The Other One which has a Bobby McGee in the last ballad spot / 2nd set and then
TOO spooky and then back into the light
for Sugar Magnolia

At about 10:30 into the 01 the boys launch into a jam that personifies the beauty of the GD.It's about as far out there as music gets,it will make you happy to be alive.

Seattle Super Sonics
There is some very inspired music being played this week in 1973 up here in the Northwest....PNE, Portland, and this Seattle show are definitely worth a look-see. This show has a crisp, energetic feel to it-both sets. Some great numbers to start it off--a rare "You Ain' Woman" showcases the nice side of what Donna's voice brought to the table, while Garcia happily just twangs away behind her. Solid, BIG Playin' anchors down the first set---Second set starts of w/ a few quick spritley intro tunes (Keith' intros are just great!)--a great TLEO, HCS, and then things get a lil' more serious--a still had-to-hurt He's Gone and then the Other One melting into Bobby McGee and back into the Other One to the cuckoos-nest and then we go into the dawn w/ the anthem of Sugar Mag. That is how it is done!! Classy act. Everyone seems to be on board for this outing. The audience recording patched in is not too bad-all things considered decades down the road. Doubledose is in there w/ the 4 star performance--just a knockdown because of audio. Great show.

Good show but stitched together with band aids and shoe polish
There are some highlights and in general this is pretty solid but the hopping back and forth between aud and brd is annoying. Sound quality 2.5 show quality 4 = 3.25. I know some folks may think this harsh but cannot give this higher.
